A$AP Rocky Says Reaction To Kendrick Lamar's

A$AP Rocky says Kendrick Lamar's verse, and the responses that have followed, are to be expected in Hip Hop.

Kendrick Lamar's verse on Big Sean's "Control (HOF)" has been the subject of endless discussion, analysis, and response from emcees.

On the track Kendrick calls out a slew of rappers, and also called himself the King of New York.

Among the emcees to respond to the track, whether on wax or otherwise, included King Los, Joe Budden, Joell Ortiz, and Drake.

One artist who was called out on the track, but didn't feel a need to respond, was A$AP Rocky. In an interview with Revolt TV, the New York ecmee explained his thought process in not responding.

"I feel like everything's going to be blown out of proportion these days," said Rocky of the whirlwind of responses and controversy that have followed the verse. "Of course it is. It's Hip Hop. He did what he did and I think people who had a problem with it said something. People who didn't have a problem with it didn't."

A$AP Rocky was on-site for the Made in America Festival in Philadelphia, which also features Public Enemy, 2 Chainz, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, as well as countless other acts.

      first thing i thought of when i read the title of the article was the Funk Flex interview with the A$AP Mob talking about the "Control" verse. A$AP mob wont be around after 2014. They will fade away in these next 15 months.

    SO... YOU SAID SOMETHING... MEANING YOU HAD A PROBLEM WITH IT... YET YOU CLAIM IT'S BLOWN OUT OF PROPORTION??

    It was never a problem with the verse the day Control dropped, I guess it was national relevance day,some people just want to feel relevant. So more power to those that got recognition. But really Control did everything for Kendrick, but them other two cats,,, it made Big Sean look like a rookie, and it took the steam out of my anticipation of Jay Electronic's project with that sub par delivery
